At Left Coast Brewing Co. we pride ourselves on being one of the pioneers of Double IPA style craft beer. This hop monster uses Premium American 2– Row and a touch of light crystal malt to create a solid malt foundation. Five different Hop Varieties are used in the Hop Juice. It spends two weeks dry hopping in fermenter contributing to its great hop aroma. Starts out sweet and finishes with the crisp bitterness of a Double IPA.

Horrible. At Least for an attempt at an IPA and a double IPA at that. Huge caramel malt at the front of the tongue and you just don't recover from it. Horrible.

Don't understand the bad reviews. For being almost 10abv, this beer pulls it off with amazing grace. Yes, it's malty but the piney bitter of the hops displaces most and leaves a pleasant afterglow. Very nice! Very drinkable....too drinkable. I'm going to have to hide the rest for the night. Salut!

Pretty lame attempt at an IIPA. Smells weird, and the taste follows. Oddly malty for a double IPA; certainly not the hop-bomb one expects from the style. Good carbonation; not altogether terrible tasting, but certainly not a beer I will ever get again. Do not mistake Left Coast for North Coast, as I think I may have when choosing this beer.

Poured a cloudy deep orange with minimal head. Quite bitter, definitely west coast style DIPA. Good mouthfeel though. The price is right but mediocre overall at best. There are far better options out there.

Poured on tap at the tasting room in San Clemente. Nice mix of cut grass, resin and citrus peel smell. Good balance of flavor with a hop forward taste and feel

APPEARANCE - 2FH that lasts, carbonation, light, clear, foamy, lots of lacing, amber.

AROMA/SCENT - Hops, citrus, pine.

TASTE - Hops, nutty, pine.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Carbonatin, dry, lingering, astringent.

VALUE - $8 for a 12-oz bottle, OK.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - It was OK, but Left Coast doesn't stamp a brew date. Unprofessional!
